Newspaper tipsA big Saturday of racing is of course headed by British Champions Day at Ascot and this meeting features heavily among the top newspaper tips for the day, while the Catterick Dash provides our most popular selection.

Check out those top tips below

1: Teruntum Star 3:25pm Catterick (3 Votes)

Has flattered to deceive over his career, but the move to a new yard may just bring out the best in him. A third place at Ascot last time out, makes it a win and three places in six soft ground trips and if they can continue this renewed focus, they may just grab a win, at a decent price.

2: Magical 4:00pm Ascot (3 Votes)

Form favourite, despite a poor showing in the Arc last time out. Five wins and three seconds in the eight races prior, along with a penchant for soft ground only strengthen their chances here, with Coronet arguably the only real threat.

3: Benbatl 3:20pm Ascot (2 Votes)

Won the Group 2: Shadwell Joel Stakes at Newmarket last month, beating King Of Comedy by five lengths. Has won three group races in Dubai and is no doubt a strong challenger here. Only issue maybe a preference for firmer ground.

4: Sands Of Mali 1:35pm Ascot (2 Votes)

Winner of this race last year, when a 28/1 shot on soft ground, has previous also over course and distance, when second in the Commonwealth Cup back in 2018. Looks a little long for the price and well worth an each-way shot.

5: Phoenix Of Spain 3:20pm Ascot (2 Votes)

Winner of the Irish 2000 Guineas, when beating Too Darn Hot, the Charlie Hills runner hasn’t quite kicked on as hoped, finishing sixth in the Sussex Stakes and most recently in the Prix Moulin last month. At around 25/1 an each-way choice looks the safest option.
